Google adds 60 more languages along with other updates in Google Translate

Google Translate instant camera translations get a massive boost

And most of the languages can be downloaded onto your device, so that you can use the feature without an internet connection.

If you regularly have to adjust the source language for your camera fed translations you might also be happy to know that Google has added an auto-detect input language toggle.

Well, lets come to the important part, Google has now introduced 60 more languages to the app so that they can cater to a larger palette of users. If you've ever tried to use the automatic translation feature in the camera, you're probably also aware it could do with some improvements. The app can also now automatically detect languages for you, so you don't need to wonder if what to select if you're in a bilingual area, and the quality of the instant camera translations has been further improved via the magic of Neural Machine Translation.

Google acquired Word Lens years ago, giving Google Translate the nifty ability to translate words with the aid of a smartphone camera. Some of the prominent additions include Arabic, Hindi, Malay, Thai, and Vietnamese. You can find a list of all 88 by clicking on this link. These make the visual interface seamless and better.

Google Translate's new instant camera will begin rolling out to about one percent of users today, with full availability coming in the next few weeks. But now you can have text translated between any two of the more than 100 languages supported by the app. Instant will provide a translation of text when the camera on your phone is pointed at it. Scan will allow you to take a photo of the text and using your finger, you can highlight the section you want translated. "We've reduced that flickering, making the text more stable and easier to understand", the company noted.
